Interesting article on aeroponics for cannabis

2 Likes

The interesting thing about aeroponics is that it’s very efficient and powerful for growing. But it’s also one of the more finicky methods of growing, from my understanding:

  • Water needs to as pure as possible to prevent nozzles from clogging due to hard water buildup. This also means nutrient injection is somewhat finicky.
  • Any power outages are exceedingly dangerous (just like with NFT).
  • All the equipment needs tight tolerances to keep the system in order.

That said, there are some unique benefits to it:

  • Plants grown aeroponically don’t suffer transplant shock.
  • It’s a useful method for experimenting with subterranean herbivores (like fungus gnats)
  • Plants can be grown in zero gravity (space!) with this method.

Was it this company or a different grow operation?

This was a small, personal grow.

I’d love to see it on a massive scale.

Maintenance might be a nightmare on a very large scale. But who knows! I don’t think it’s been tried.
